The winners and runners up of the 2019 Nature Photographer Of The Year were announced recently. The standards were incredibly high, as usual. The award was presented at the Nature Talks Photo Festival in the Netherlands and over 14,000 images were submitted by photographers from 73 different countries in the competition.
Entries were divided into 11 categories including Birds, Mammals, Plants and mushrooms, Landscapes, Underwater and Man and Nature. Category winners are then pitted against each other to decide the Grand Prize: the prestigious title of Nature Photographer Of The Year.
